WINTER VACATIONS IN NASSFELD
In winter, Nassfeld welcomes you with open arms. Vacationing here is a wish come true even for the most demanding guests. Nassfeld is located on three slopes, connected with a pass. It is the largest alpine resort in Carinthia—and the most modern in the whole of Austria.
